Books in Brackets
If college basketball isn’t your thing but you still crave a little madness to finish out your March (and Jargon Madness didn’t give you enough bracket action to satiate that craving), you won’t want to miss today’s matchups in Out of Print’s second annual Book Madness tournament.
Out of Print, a company that “celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion” by providing bookish t-shirts and accessories (while partnering with Books for Africa), has open voting in its Book Madness tournament. Last year’s inaugural competition selected To Kill a Mockingbird as the champion classic book. This year, the field of sixty-four was limited to twenty-first-century works of fiction.
Pick your favorites in today's Final Four matchups by voting before 12 pm Eastern today. Will The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time beat The Blind Assassin? Did The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo defeat American Gods only to fall to The Kite Runner, or will it make it to the championship game? Tune in Monday, April 2, at 12 pm to see which book basks in that one shining moment of triumph.
Update: It looks like The Blind Assassin will be up against The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in Monday's championship game. Have you read either contender? Which will get your vote?
